Punch: Adjusting the Punch Vertical Position (Crosswise Direction)

You can adjust the depth direction of punch hole positions to fix misalignment of punch hole position with the center of punched output.

As an example, this section explains how to adjust the punch hole position by using the Finisher FS-532 mounted Punch Kit PK-522 when it is misaligned upward (backward) by 1.5 mm from the center of the papers.

• Meaning and Purpose of Punch Vertical Position Adjustment

  • When the punch hole position is misaligned from the center of paper, this function allows you to move the punch hole position forward or backward by specifying the desired value.

  • Negative values move the punch hole position forward (downward).

  • Positive values move the punch hole position backward (upward).

• When to perform

  • When the center of punch hole position and the center of paper are misaligned

  1. Measure the current misalignment 'a' of the punch hole position using a ruler.

    • Measure the difference between paper center position (1) and punch hole center position (2) (= Width 'a').

  2. On the touch panel of the main body, press [Adjustment] on the [MACHINE] screen.

  3. Press [Finisher Adjustment] on the [Adjustment Menu] screen.

  4. Press [Staple Finisher Adjustment] on the [Finisher Adjustment] menu.

  5. Press [Staple Finisher (Punch) Adj.] on the [Staple Finisher Adjustment] menu.

  6. Press [Vertical Position Adj. (CD)] on the [Staple Finisher (Punch) Adj.].

  7. Press the paper size to adjust. Enter the adjustment value and press [Set].

    Example: Make the punch hole position for [Offset for All Size] (all paper sizes) downward (forward) by 1.5 mm.



    [Offset for All Size]

    Moving 1.5 mm downward (forward) (-15)

    • Press [+/-], [1], [5], and [Set] to enter the value [-15]. This moves the staple position 1.5 mm downward (forward).

    • Press the keypad on the screen to set the value.

    • Use [+/-] to specify the value to be positive or negative.

    • The values are in 0.1 mm increments. (1 = 0.1 mm)

    • Pressing [Print Mode] switches the mode to print mode, which allows you to print the original.

  8. Print the original again and check the punch hole center position for misalignment.

    Repeat the above steps until the desired punch center position is obtained.
